sana.sy – Medvedev: Dialogue Is Only Solution to Crisis in Syria och Press TV – Russia criticizes France over supporting insurgents in Syria – och Voice of Russia – Medvedev slams as ‘uncivilized’ France’s decision to recognize Syrian opposition
Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said ” France’s support to the so-called Syrian coalition violates the international law as no country has the right to work for the forced change of the political regime of any other country.
In an interview with French media posted by the Russian Government’s official website on Monday, Medvedev reiterated his country’s support to solve the crisis in Syria peacefully and through dialogue.
The Russian Premier said ” a desire to change the political regime of another state by recognizing any political force as the sole carrier of sovereignty seems to me to be not completely civilized,”
”It is preferable if the Syrian opposition came to power legally and not because of deliveries of arms from other countries,” he added.
Igor Ignatchenko – Libyan Scenario for Syria
This September the British Times published an article saying the largest shipload of arms destined for Free Syrian Army came to Turkey from Libya. It stated there were 400 tons of weapons, including an unspecified number of shoulder-fired anti-aircraft missiles, grenade launchers and other arms aboard a Libyan ship the Intisaar, docked at the Turkish port of Iskenderun. The ship’s captain was Omar Mousaeeb, a Libyan from Benghazi.
It is far from being the only arms shipment sent to anti-government Syrian gangs in recent months. Back in April this year the Libyan authorities intercepted a cache of weapons aboard the Luftfallah II cargo vessel that supposedly were intended to supply opposition forces in Syria. The shipment included portable anti-tank grenade launchers, mortars, large caliber machine guns, automatic rifles and shoulder-fired air defense systems. According to the Sunday Times, in the period since April till August at least seven arms shipments, including portable air defense missiles, were unloaded from vessels near Lebanon. The ships never entered the port of Tripoli but were anchored in neutral waters 30 km from the Lebanese coast. The boats unloaded the weapons when the night darkness descended….
The clouds keep on gathering over Syria. French Ambassador to the country Eric Chevallier openly said back in September that France was cooperating with the Â«oppositionÂ» forces there.
The report that Terrorists in Syria seized Palestinian Camp in Damascus is false. Confirmed Bullshit – kremltv broadcasted from it just recently.
